As a self-professed design nerd, the arrival of Hendley & Co is one of the most exciting new businesses to arrive in downtown Newburgh. Designer Jessica Lynn Williams is the owner and shop keeper of this shop that not only offers interior design services but also beautiful curated home items.

Join them January 26 11am-7pm for their grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at 87 Ann Street. See below for some of the goodies you’ll be able to find.

You can order sofas from Interior Define, a furniture company that sells mostly online only except for very limited locations.

Look out for their sign on the corner of Ann and Liberty Streets, just across from the Wherehouse Restaurant.

Between Spaces LLC is redeveloping the old ADS warehouse on Ann Street. On December 11 they went before they ARC and presented this design. This has to be done when your building is within the historic district. The project was approved and praised for their efforts to create something a bit more modern in Newburgh. If you’d like to follow up with the project make sure to follow them on Instagram.

This is going to be very exciting for the Liberty Street and Lower Broadway corridors. There will be a public art space component and retail use as well as pop-up space.
